    Red orange Sponge coral?

    I have many smaller pieces but never seen one this large or in red. Alot more red in person. Anyone know what this would be and the correct name? Undocumented origin Unfortunately.. Thanks

    Is this coral or sponge?

    My neice just pulled this out of the creek at my mom's near Ashland Kentucky. I know the area to be Carboniferous. I think it's a coral, but I'm still too much of an amateur to know for sure. Any help would be appreciated by myself and my neice.

    Toronto Don River Fossil

    Hey everyone, I found this fossil along the Don River yesterday. I believe there's a crinoid stem and coral fossil in limestone from Georgian Bay Formation. Is this right? Please let me know Thanks so much!

    How to prep coral colony?

    I would greatly appreciate any advice on how to clean/prep this coral colony. It was found in a shale pit in northern Iowa-from the Lime Creek formation. As you can see, there’s quite a bit still clinging to it. Is it safe to clean with some water and a toothbrush? The underside seems to have crystallized(?). Very new to fossil collecting and subsequent preparation. Thank you in advance! If anyone has a guess at ID please let me know as well.

    A reconstruction of the Mahantango Formation

    I just finished a reconstruction of the Mahantango ecosystem, based off of fossils I have found at corresponding sites. This certainly does not cover all species in this formation, but many of the most prominent (Sorry no Dipleura, haven't done that one yet). I recently learned about Striacoceras and re-identified many of my orthocerids as this obscure genus. Striacoceras is the brown orthocone in the background. I included two crinoid genera, (left to right) Ancyrocrinus and Botryocrinus. an Eldredgeops searches for prey. There are several Mucrospirifer brachiopods, some Orthonota bivalves, a

    Rugose coral? and tiny spaghetti O's

    Picked this up in Woodbine as erosion control rock, thinking it's Pennsylvanian from out west of here though. Not familiar enough with corals and preservation like this to be certain it's rugose since some shapes are odd. What's more curious is the tiny circles which were difficult to get clear pictures of, most can't be picked up on an image. They appear to be spirals and not all are identical. Stumped as to what they are. Have an area highlighted to show size, the largest one a little over one mm, the smallest almost microscopic.
  11. Hi to all, first time poster here. I have recently returned from Anglesey with a handful of finds in tow and would like some ID if possible. This is a find of 2 fossils on the same rock, I was thinking some sort of coral....

    Is this a piece of coral

    I found this fossil in a creek bed in central Missouri and thought it looked a lot like coral. Just wanted a more experienced fossil hunters expertise on Id. It’s a 14 centimeters long, 5 inches.

    Wny Devonian plant?

    Found on lake Erie shore . Not sure what I have here. Did chemical preparation.
  14. All, I occasionally find these small fossils in the Topeka Limestone that look like a branched type of rhombophora. I have attached a plate from the guidebook that shows it may be a penniretepora or a acanthocladia but I am not sure. The fossil in question is about .5" long. Sorry for the bad photos. I couldn't get my focus right. I just love Topeka and Americus limestone though! I think you could stare a piece for hours and never notice every detail. I've always wondered if the sea just had that much life in it then or if the remains just collected mor
  15. A few years ago, I found a fossilized something on the Beach at Cape Henlopen. It was embedded in quartz. It looked kinda like a belemnite, but the wrong material. I was told by Plax that it was much older than our cretaceous belemnites. I tucked it into a spot on the shelf and wondered about it. Since then I have seen a few posts here and there from folks in NJ finding nice little paleozoic pieces on their side of the bay as well. This summer, I made it a mission to explore the Delaware beaches and see what I could find and how far north they went. I began at the cape and worked m
  16. Hey fossil people... more specifically hey Arizona fossil people. I'm wondering if any of you have run across fossilized horn coral in this state? If you have, tell me about it. I'd love to see examples of what you've found. I"ve found lots of brachiopods and other marine life in Arizona but this is the first time I've found horn coral. The idea that Arizona used to be underwater is fascinating to me. Theyre not the prettiest specimens... but i found them and they're mine! Lol. For those wondering, I found these near Payson Arizona. Same place I've found byrozoans, brachiopods, and

    Shell or bone in coral?

    Can anyone ID this? Found on the beach near Charleston, SC.
  18. This was found on the beach in Romania (Black Sea). It is about 6cm. I have no idea what it is. At first look it seems like a fossilized coral. But as I did some research, this doesn't really look like other fossilized corals I've seen. Another option could be borings made by creatures, but a lot of them are openings rather than holes (apart from a big deep hole which is visible in pictures, is that a boring?). Another option I found is something volcanic, but why does it have so many holes? Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you!

    Possible coral fossil?

    I found this rock looking for geodes, I think it’s a fossil but I’m not quite sure. My best guess is coral IMG_1254.MOV IMG_1254.MOV

    Western Wi Fossil?

    Hello, We found this in western Wisconsin in a dry run. We're thinking possibly some kind of coral? Complete N00b here The whole piece is about 5.5" long, the striated part that we believe is fossil piece is approx 1 inch long. Thank you so much for your help!
  21. My collection is enriched with new pieces from the dear, old Europe. This is a Gryphaea dilatata, the so-called "devil's toenail", from Villers-sur-Mer in Normandy, France:
